in "the two betrayals" the monitor mentioned that halo has been fired before, but still the flood have not starved to death, which what is expected to happen, but they managed to live,which means they are able to stay dormant for a period of time until a host is detected and can be taken over.
in "first strike" cortana said that there are flood virus present in sargent Johnson's blood stream, but are "dead" because they could not take over the sarge's nervous system, but because of their ability to stay dormant, what if the sarge comes into contact with another person and passes the flood virus to another person which can be infected? what will happen then?
We shudder to think. ;-)
